I haven't been able to find any documentation or threads on this. Any ideas?

Saxo,

The brochure that I downloaded said: 'Filter Attachment Size- 67 mm.'

Makes me buying a new polarizer!

sight at the bottom of the page it states it is 67mm.

I hope it is as I have just brought a filter ready to cover the front of the new lens when I get my D70.

It is indeed 67mm. Product shots of the lens clearly show the 67mm marking on the underside of the lens barrel. Ah, 67mm... how unique, how uncommon, how useless!

LOL. Yeah, aside from that one possible upgrade path, 67mm for the moment is an anomaly. Don't worry, my 67mm filters have a home too... on the 18-70mm.

>67mm... how unique, how uncommon, how useless!

If you want a filter for protection Nikon supply a 67 NC - as recommended in the lens instructions.

Nikon NC list at 30% less than Nikon UV so they are not that expensive having regard to the quality of the glass, filter mount and coating.

You may need a new Pol and for slide work any other colour adjustment filter you use when needed.

Nikon are being kind - they are giving you an opportunity to buy more bits for your camera system!

With the smaller sensor and smaller DX lenses I would not be surprised to see 67mm replacing 72mm for the DX range.

Photography is a bit like archery. A technically better camera, lens or arrow may not hit the target as often as it could if the photographer or archer does not practice enough.
